14 Halloween Decorating Ideas That Are So Chic It’s Spooky
With Halloween right around the corner, it’s time to start getting your house ready for costume parties and trick-or-treaters. It’s never too soon to start decorating and planning!
Sometimes Halloween decorations can look tacky, but it doesn’t have to! Forget about plastic pumpkins, faux cobwebs and blow up ghosts. This year opt in for elegant decor that walks the line between seeming spooky and feeling haunted.
Whether you’re throwing a Halloween dinner party or want to be festive for your kids, we found stunning decor that will elevate your home in such a way your friends and neighbors might think it’s witchcraft.
It’s truly scary how stunning these decorations are.
Batch Tip: Hosting a haunted Halloween dinner party is a lot of fun, but getting your table dolled up is another story. To create a spooky yet stunning experience, create a large centerpiece for your lush dinner party by incorporating fall flowers, pumpkins, and tall candle holders for an eerie vibe.
Batch Tip: While Halloween has its festive traditions (who doesn't love a good jack-o-lantern?!) don't feel like you have to always sacrifice elegance for your decor. Instead of the classic carved, opt for mercury glass pumpkins. Not only will they add a chic edge to your haunted decor, you can continue to reuse them for Halloweens to come. Or if you’re feeling crafty, grab some paint and rhinestones to decorate a sophisticated looking pumpkin.
Batch Tip: Your Halloween decor doesn’t only have to be limited to your front yard or family room! Become a true mixologist this year by decorating your bar cart, buffet or dining table with deathly skulls, killer potions, and apothecary jars filled with your favorite candy.
Batch Tip: For some less-frightening decor, turn your pumpkin carving into a vase for a beautiful fall floral arrangement! Not only are these perfect for both indoors and outdoors, you can continue to use them throughout the fall! Pro Tip: Make your floral arrangement last by inserting a glass vase filled with soaked garden foam to help keep your flowers hydrated!
